KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Indiana Fever coach Lin Dunn is back in her home state to receive her biggest honor yet as she nears the conclusion of an illustrious career.

Dunn, who will retire from coaching at the end of the season, is being inducted Saturday into the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame. Dunn, a Nashville native, still has plenty of ties to Tennessee.

Dunn went 447-257 in a 25-year college head coaching career with stops at Austin Peay, Mississippi, Miami and Purdue. She also has coached the ABL's Portland Power and the WNBA's Seattle Storm and Indiana Fever. She led Indiana to the 2012 WNBA title.

This year's induction class also includes former players Michelle Edwards, Yolanda Griffith and Jasmina Perazic, broadcaster Mimi Griffin, and former Southern Illinois women's athletic director Charlotte West.
